states. >> president obama and mitt romney were out of the public eye today as they get ready for the first debate on wednesday. vice president in spoke in florida up for the second consecutive day. he blamed republicans and the bush should ministration for the deficit. >> by the times be rains were turned over to barack and me, they had doubled the national debt in eight years. >> today, paul ryan campaigned in new hampshire. the granite state has four electoral votes. but that could make a difference in the race that could come down to a handful of states. >> thank you for sending mitt romney to the white house and barack obama back to chicago. >> the campaign is shifting to a different stage this week with wednesday night's showdown between president obama ann romney. >> if you have taken a look at the history of debates, it is not about policies. is not about facts. it has changed because someone did badly or did well. >> both candidates are in intense prep sections. romney may have the most on the line. his campaign is looking at this as a chance for a game changer. >> on
is behind. polls show he lags president obama both nationwide and in key battleground states where the races are either tight or obama holds a clear edge. heightening the urgency, early voting is underway in 30 states, including wisconsin, iowa, new hampshire, virginia, and north carolina, and it starts tuesday in ohio and florida. the romney campaign looks to find its footing in the next 37 days. that's next with alex castellano, dana bash, and celinda lake. a little bit more vanilla? this is great!

are defending 11 states. some of them not in the friendliest of terrains for president obama, but as we saw last year in kentucky, a state that where the president did not prevail, our candidate was all about jobs, all about bringing people together to make the tough decisions to expand the economy and great jobs, and we prevailed, so i think you're going to see our candidates come through in this election. >> when you look at, montana, lamb ham, north carolina, washington state, all of those held by democrats, all look very threatened by pretty strong republican races, that's 50% of the seats you're defending. >> right. that's what makes it so exciting. >> yeah, yeah. you look excited. >> you look at some of those states, i mean, in the state of new hampshire where maggie hassen is running very competitively. she follows a republican governor that retired very popular. you look at washington state insy who wrote the book on jobs creation. and it's about wanting to see our country create jobs more quickly and some of those states, quite honestly, are in parts of the country geographically where
of the two-state solution. you must finish the conflict and it will be a palestinian state if obama adopted the approach to build up the palestinian state but in my book i prefer a new paradigm we have tried it for the last 20 years we tried with gaza and it did not help us as well. it should be a three state solution. i speak about jordan, egypt and israel. we should not be a palestinian state the tests with lap band and the gaza. islamic radical forces. >> guest: to see the same happening? i do not. look beyond the current administration but but to e eliminate a sum of bin laden when loathsome let the this stage president decided to kill osama bin laden. 24 hours later it condemned the u.s. for killing one of the greatest leaders. do know which? the leader of the hamas organization in gaza to say i condemn the u.s. but on the other end by sending the troops to keogh osama bin laden they've pressure israel to sit down and negotiate. but with whom? the same people who incite against the jews everyday? that is why if we have to get to a point* we cannot allow the palestinian state but to get
polls give president obama an edge in three key swing states. once you isolate voters who are extremely interested in the election, the race is much closer. >> romney's tied when you focus on the inexpressibly intrigued. and he's up by two points when you count only voters who are psychotically engaged. folks, i have got my own source of polls, conservative blogger dean chambers who analyzed these polls favoring obama and then reached the scientific conclusion that they just didn't look right. chambers' work throws all polls into doubt now. even the internal ones i have taken of myself. i mean, the results say i'm not that excited about mitt romney, but as a conservative i feel like i should love him. maybe the sample size is too small or maybe i checked the wrong box and i'm actually latino, you know? >> it's not a good sign just six weeks from election day to bash the polls. >>> the first presidential debate is next week, next wednesday. looking back to the gop primary debates for a moment, there were probably times when you heard a candidate's response and thought, can that really be
remarkable thing when you go back and look at the state by state swing state polls, in florida or in wisconsin or in ohio or in iowa, the remarkable thing and the only thing that has changed in terms of the demographics is that barack obama is now tied with mitt romney or beating mitt romney among voters over 60. that's the very group that is the most skeptical of barack obama. they have been the hardest group for him to win over, but he is now winning them over and there's only one reason for that, it is medicare. and, you know, as much as i totally understand what howard fineman was saying, there was no other reason to pick paul ryan other than his budget. paul ryan was not the governor of a state, he can't deliver his home state from what we're seeing -- >> we know that now. >> you picked him because you wanted to tell the right we're going to take your ideology and take it to main street and then he didn't want to do it. he is trying to hide -- >> let me -- now you got into a little thought here about howard's thinking, my question to you, and it's a tough one, didn't he kn
now in states like virginia. they lost it by 270,000 votes four years ago. i don't think obama can get the college turnouts. and i think romney is going to cut into the northern margin substance staley. i think the -- more promise, this equestering can put a big cloud over all the workers and defense workers, what's going to happen to them after november. >> all the demographics how you have to go about changing virginia. look at unemployment, it's low. they're not having as much of a problem as the rest of the nation. it's raising a huge question for federal workers as to who's going to get cut. demographics have changed, the republicans need to understand there's a very multi ethnic area. fairfax county, the largers jurisdiction in the state. so they have to address those issues and they're doing a great job, i think. >> romnalex, if people know pennsylvania, it really is a purple state, very independent minded people. there was a susquehanna poll that had milt romney within about two points. if he's going to have a strategy in pennsylvania, he's got to focus on those counties that a
romney's pass to president obama's 270 electoral votes. one of the most conservative swing states that president obama won back in 2008. the amount of money that both campaigns are throwing at this state, it's very clear that nobody has put it away yet, and in fact that obama leads most of the polls. if some of these swing states aren't going to -- >> well, dana, they sent paul ryan to the major league state of ohio and he was talking about medicare while come paining. >> i want to be very care about this, mitt romney and i will never waiver in our commitment to our seniors. our plans actually save these programs, they make no changes for people in or near retirement, they strengthen medicare and social security for a generation. >> i'm curious, a new quinnipiac poll shows that toward the end of august, more seniors in florida favored mitt romney on medicare. now that has flipped, more seniors now support president obama with medicare. what do you make of the numbers, did mitt romney make too much baggage on this critical issue when he selected paul ryan? >> part of that is more e
of things today. eight months ago, in the state of the union speech, obama issued an appeal to congress to spend more federal money on construction projects that would generate jobs. what he said was, take the money we are no longer spending at war. use half of the to pay down our debt. use the rest to do some nation building right here at home. we pointed out in a fact check that night the fallacy of that idea. the idea that some kind of budget surplus is going to be created when you stop the wars is fiscal fiction. those wars have been primarily financed by borrowing. if you stop the wars, you do not have new money, you just have less debt being added. it does not treat a pool of ready cash. on top of that, the supposed savings of this supposed peace dividend is inflated because it is based on spending numbers that are extrapolated into the future that would come from the height of the intensity of the war and they do not follow the downward trend that it has been in reality. we pointed all that out in a fact check on a state of the union night. how does the administration react? thre
believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. >> this morning, the state of the race, a debate preview and a look at the issues that will sway undecided voters. with us, republican governor of new jersey, the keynoter at the gop convention, chris christie. and for the obama campaign. the architect of his 2008 run. now, white house senior adviser, david plum. finally insights and analysis if our political roundtable, plus the latest from the battleground map. joining us, founder of the faith and freedom coalition, ralph reed. >>> former democratic governor of pennsylvania, ed rendell. >>> anchor of bbc's world news america. and our chief white house correspondent, and political director, chuck todd. >>> good sunday morning, with both sides in full preparation mode for wednesday's first presidential debate, the struggling romney campaign is recalibrating his message to better connect with voters on the economy and to attack the president on his handling of the latest foreign policy crisis, the evolving explanation of what exactly happened in libya. when our u.s. ambassador was ki
in fort myers florida during a two day campaign swing through the sunshine state. in addition to tax cuts, biden talked about social security, medicare, and president obama's plan to end the war in afghanistan. >>> early voting is under way in virginia. the state allows certain voters to begin casting ballots as early as 45 days ahead of an election. volunteers from both the obama and romney camps have been canvassing neighborhoods hoping to attract those early voters. >>> in his weekly internet address, president obama blasted republicans in congress for blasting a vote to help homeowners refinance their mortgages. >> but republicans in congress work to keep it from even getting to a vote. and here we are seven months later still waiting on congress to act. >> mr. obama says the plan would save many homeowners on average $3,000 a year on their mortgages. >>> governor jerry brown today said he had vetoed a bill that would have banned disrupting cell phone service without a court order. the bill was authored in the wake of a decision by b.a.r.t. last year to cut cell phone service in an ef
's obama advantage across the board. look at ohio, plus seven. virginia, plus five. these are key states. is the race over? >> absolutely not. and that happened pretty quickly, right, david? you saw the change in those polls happen very quickly. and i'm here to tell you it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night when governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mate, after you have your own convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you'll have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this r
. there are people in this room who were alive in 1967. [laughter] it was still the legal and a lot of states for racial intermarriage. when barack obama's parents got married in kenya -- i'm sorry. [laughter] it is a cheap joke and i apologize but it does remind me. everybody knows mitt romney is having a rough patch as presidential candidate but a sentence i have not heard a word anywhere if only donald trump had been the nominee. because as you recall he sort of built this campaign around the idea that barack obama was born in kenya or some wherever than the united states, but the campaign did not take off and mitt romney is there for better or worse and in all seriousness when barack obama's parents got married in 1960i think it was, because it was in hawaii, that wasn't a freudian slip, that was just wrong to got married in hawaii and there were people in prison in this country for the racial intermarriage. it was illegal in 1960, and it just gives you an idea of how much the country has changed in a good way. but, right after richard nixon became president, four vacancies appear on the
crystal ball station we have him at 290 electoral votes but some of those states are just barely leaning to him, like my native virginia. obama is ahead two or three points. the polls have him up higher than that, but i don't think he's really there. >> schieffer: ar let me just go to our map of the battled ground states here, nevada, new hampshire, north carolina, ohio, virginia, florida, iowa, wisconsin and colorado. i think most of the polls suggest now that the president is at least slightly ahead in all of these states, except possibly north carolina. cbs news is now calling ohio in fact leaning, leaning to the president not a toss-up state. does that sound about right to you? >> that sounds about right. i actually think north carolina is probably leaning to romney, despite some recent polls to the contrary. to be honest i think the three toss-ups where he has the best shot are florida, new hampshire, and particularly colorado. but in all of those other toss-upes, like wisconsin, nevada, ohio, virginia, you're seeing at least at this point a trend to obama. but, bob, i would just ca
, the president will spend the next two days campaigning in the important battleground state of ohio. by the way, president obama will prepare for the debates in nevada where he'll also hold a campaign rally. >>> i'm paul steinhauser on the campaign trail. republican presidential nominee mitt romney flies to colorado tomorrow. he holds a rally in the swing stattomorrow night before hunkering down for final preparations. meanwhile his wingman, running mate paul ripian campaigns at the beginning of the week in iowa. >>> i'm poppy harlow in new york. all eyes will be on the economy this week. the big news for wall street comes on friday with the september jobs report. of course, that is key for the market, but it's also key in the race for the white house. also ahead, we'll get a look at september auto sales data as well as the latest look at construction spending. we'll see if those indicators show any continued signs of improvement like we've been seeing in the housing market. the fed releases minutes from its last meeting, shedding more light on the central bank's decision to try to further stim
, setting the stage where the race is right now, we see president obama ahead five points nationally, right now, ahead in all of the battleground states, what happened in september? >> i think, this race, if it's a five-point race, is when you look at this, the national number is 5er 6. all of the target states are going be somewhere around that national number. what i think that romney -- what happened to romney campaign, i think political malpractice. they left the playing field to the entire obama campaign. they allowed them to outspend them in the summer. and basically set the tone for the final 60 days of this campaign. which puts them behind after the convention. now, they're behind in the prism of which voters view this is negative for mitt romney. >>> i want to put up a chart right now. it comes from the "new york times" after that 47% comment right here, you see it right there, it look at how it opens up in that last week and a half that was damaging? >> well, it may well end being damaging. this campaign is all about process, it's about polling, campaign management. it's about eve
enlisted by the obama campaign are going to appear in sweng states this coming week, ohio, florida and wisconsin, back to you in new york. >> clayton: oh, boy, the dirtness not over yet, 36 days left now. >> alisyn: i've lost track. >> clayton: get out your abacus, receipt n-- right now, president obama and mitt romney are behind closed doors and doing debate prep and rob portman doing the debate prep for mitt romney has been going after him, really, really tough and governor, trying to throw him off and get him agitated, but the vice-presidential candidates are out, they're basically doing the campaigning right now. >> alisyn: they're in some battle ground states and vice-president biden was in florida, whereas so was paul ryan, right, in florida. >> dave: in ohio, i believe. >> alisyn: in ohio. he was in ohio and he reminded his ohio audience about something that candidate obama said about guns and religion back in 2008. let's listen to obama back then. >> people have been beaten down they feel (inaudible) >> that was of course, the candidate at a san francisco fundraiser, talki
economy that fosters dependency? that is not who we are. in the live free or die state, we want to live free and prosper. [applause] when president obama came into office, he inherited a tough situation. there are no two boys about it. the problem is, the obama economic agenda failed -- there are no two ways about it. it failed because it was bad. he came into office with one party rule. host: paul ryan and new hampshire. our third party is still relevant? caller: good morning. relevant not as parties but in terms of spoilers. they have been relevant with mr. ross perot. i like him. i think he could have done wonderfully if he stayed within the republican party. i google this. we have had 132 third party presidential candidates going back to 1832 when it was the anti mason party or something like that. none of them have garnered much of the vote. there are mostly french candidates. i do not said derogatory. they do not have a lot of base. it is not that they are not popular because they get no media, they get no media because they are not popular. even ron paul and even ross perot. the
